Rocky's Revenge

Rocky's Revenge

I was introduced to Rocky Riveraโ€™s powerful music thanks to her awesome set at Rickshaw Stop for a Womenโ€™s Audio Mission showcase night. Since then I have played her in a ton of my episodes (starting with โ€œPussy Killsโ€ in Woman Power I), and most recently I saw her perform at The New Parish for her Rockyโ€™s Revenge album release party with openers Versoul, Shyโ€™an G and more.

The art for the album cover of Rockyโ€™s Revenge is a painting by Phung Huynh, which depicts Rocky as the goddess Kali, slayer of time & death, with the heads of Proud Boys around her neck. Get your Rockyโ€™s Revenge gear direct from her while it lasts. I wear my crew neck sweatshirt everywhere, makes cat-callers think twice for sure. (I hand-wash mine, the print quality is super high.)

For more, check out this 2016 article from East Bay Express about Rockyโ€™s perspective on feminism โ€” read it here: โ€œI make music that I want to hear, that represents the diversity of thought that women encompass. My music doesn't represent everyone, but the topics I discuss move towards more authentic inclusivity.โ€

Get into more feminist music in my Womxn Power episode series.
